Deposed Bishop in Paraguay -- Where is the truth?

With his usual adroit style, Sandro Magister tells us the other side of the situation regarding the deposed Bishop of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. All Rome has said was that there was an issue of unity and "communion" with the other bishops. But what if the problem is the other bishops? The media has built up that this is about a priest with a suspected background which the diocese defends against. Yet, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X wrote to the Bishop of Scranton warning him of this very same priest.

When one reads the "facts" on the web page of the diocese, we see a diocese in growth of catechesis, charity, vocations and religious formation. Yet, we see the bishop of that diocese deposed by the Pope and convoluted reasons from the usual media spin-doctor, Lombardi. 

Where is the truth

The Bishop Deposed in Paraguay. The Defense Speaks
He has been removed without being able to read the charges against him. He has knocked at the pope’s door without being received. Here is his reconstruction of events, against the dramatic backdrop of the Church in his country

by Sandro Magister

ROME, October 2, 2014 – It is rare for a pope to depose a bishop. It is even more outlandish for a Jesuit pope to kick out a bishop of Opus Dei.

And yet this is what has happened in Ciudad del Este, the diocese of Paraguay overlooking Iguazù Falls on the border with Brazil and Argentina, in the territory that from three to four centuries ago was civilized and Christianized by the Jesuit missionaries of the “Reductions.”
